Mica Stone Sculpture Texture Canvas for ColourArte

Hi Friends
sharing a canvas with tutorial on the ColourArte blog today, I am pleased with the yummy textures here....

Lets see the process now:
I started with a 12"x!2" canvas board. A thick coat of Texture paste all over the canvas.  while the paste is wet, press damp crochet doilies, laces and stamps to create texture on the canvas. embed lace flowers, paper clay flourishes, dragon fly, paper flower,beads, bottle cap charms into the paste.
You can see the detail of doily impression, embedded clear beads and bottle cap embellishment here.............
let dry overnight....simple handmade flower and the paper clay dragonfly.....
 A coat of Black Gesso and Texture sand paste on the edges. I added some detail with epoxy putty to add some stems to my flowers
 a little dry brushing with white gesso to create variation in colors
 I created a spray with the new product by ColourArte --The Solution acrylic wash to make a Spray Fixative to bind Arte-Pigments to my project using the ratio of  1 Part-“The Solution”-3 Parts water .........
Next I sprinkled Primary Elements Bolivian Blue, Majestic Blue, teal Zircon,African jade and sprayed with the custom mix, drying the layers in between

Here I am adding Black Ice Primary Elements to create shadows..
 after this dried, I added some layers of silks with apple Blossom,Yellow Rose randomly
DecoArt crackle glaze is added to create a crackle effect
Finally dry brushing with Metallic lustre in Rose Gold, Brilliant Turquoise to enhance the  textures and crackle effect. The final canvas has a wonderful metallic stone sculpture-ish look , hope I am able to capture it for you in these pictures...

Decoupage Box

Hi Friends
Sharing an MDF Decoupaged Box using beautiful decoupage papers from Hobby Ideas. All the supplies are available at the online as well as physical stores of Hobby ideas. The decoupage papers are such superior quality and just blend in with the painted surface and become a part of the surface after one applies decoupage glue.You can have a look at all the wonderful designs here. These come in a set of two coordinated designs and are translucent. The paper is enough to make at least three such boxes. 

I painted the box with a coat of white gesso and then painted the box inside out with Fevicryl Pearl colors in Turquoise blue and Pearl white. Cut the paper to size and using decoupage glue to the surface... 

Used Fevicryl 3 D Outliner in Pearl Metallic Gold  and the Art Is Stencil by Crafters Workshop to stencil script design on the lid as well on the sides.....

highlighted the paper design with Metallic gold outliner dots............

the lid inside..........

stamping with texture stamps and Archival black Ink..........embellish using Mdf letters and birds...the feet and edges are distressed with adding the gold metallic and wiping with a wet rag............Finished with a coat of varnish to seal all the layers.........

All the products used in this project are available with Hobby Ideas online and physical stores.they have a huge range of MDF objects ideal for decoupage and a fabulous collection of  Decoupage papers.
